More from Walter Maris
This meditation for March 2017 was not on my mind to write for a long time, and that is true for most of my writing. If I see, hear, or become involved in something that I think would be inspirational to others then I try to write something with supporting scriptures that will give a kick-start to a person who wants to live for the Lord.
My inspiration this time was talking to my brother who lives in the mountains about 40 miles southwest of Denver, and he was quite excited about taking a friend’s wife to the hospital to pick up her husband. My brother and his wife had received a late afternoon call from the wife about a week previously. She was very upset because of some of the issues her husband was experiencing after he had suffered a bad fall and hit his head. My brother stopped what he was doing and took her husband to the hospital where he had surgery the next day. Now that the husband was in good enough shape to return home, the friends again called my brother for help. The fact that he was excited to be in service considering his age blessed my heart. My brother didn’t think his effort was worthy of being part of a meditation, but having told me earlier that seniors have to deal with limiting ability he lost that argument.
Is not the scripture 1 Peter 4:10--" And serve each other according to the gift each person has received, as good managers of God’s diverse gifts"--more than a suggestion?
